Devin Townsend Project

Devin Townsend Project began where Ziltoid the Omniscient left off, with Devin Townsend at the helm. The project was a planned four-album series, where instead of assembling one static band, like in The Devin Townsend Band, or performing the entirety of the music himself, as in Ziltoid the Omniscient, the Devin Townsend Project would feature a completely different line-up of musicians for each release. After the success of the first four albums, Devin Townsend decided to continue working under the Devin Townsend Project moniker, releasing his latest album, fifth for the DTP, Epicloud in September of 2012.

The first album, Ki, was released in May 2009. For Ki, Townsend recruited veteran jazz drummer Duris Maxwell, local bassist Jean Savoie, and the former keyboardist for The Devin Townsend Band, Dave Young. Devin has also recruited Ché Dorval as an additional vocalist.

The second release was titled Addicted. Intended to be a heavy, simplistic, and straightforward rock album, it serves as the bridge from the quieter Ki to the expected zany metal tones of the album following it. The line-up for this album was Ryan Van Poederooyen (also a veteran of The Devin Townsend Band) on the drums, another member of the DTB Brian Waddell on the bass, and Anneke van Giersbergen (notable from The Gathering, Agua de Annique and Ayreon) on guest vocals.

There was an EP released in early 2011. It was only available online (free to download) and named European Tour EP. It featured five live songs, mostly consisting of material from Devin Townsend’s solo albums. See more here:

    Asking someone to pick their favourite DTP album is the musical equivalent of Sophie's Choice

    That's quite interesting, sounds like it's shaping up to be a rather varied album.

    Saloon and Coming Home are going to be used in Ziltoid in some fashion or another.

    Saloon is on the Unplugged album and on his Ghost section of By a Thread. Coming Home appears to have disappeared, or perhaps morphed into another song. Mayhaps it's on the USB?

    The Dimension Z 'demo' may end up being stuck in my head until the release of Z2...

    Question: does anyone knows how to unlock the commentary on The Retinal Circus DVD? I was playing disc one the other day and accidentally pressed some buttons that gave access to the commentary, but couldn't find the button combination when playing the second disc..

    I hope the artist for the first disc is the "Ziltoid's Omniscient Project" as a parody of the DTP. That would be class
